Now available, the first proper convertible, that actually works as a normal board as well!
When doing a foil convertible, you need a board without too much rocker, otherwise the foil angle will be to high. Also the board needs a fairly flat bottom, otherwise the foil will not fit. The only board in the Appletree range to have these characteristics is the Klokhouse Noseless. Luckily this is also the board that has the widest range, from small waves and strapless to big surf. So the Klokhouse Noseless convertible is the best all in one package!
The foil box is locked in the board in the same way that we do it on our normal foil only boards. This is by far the strongest foil construction. The foil boxes never break or fail. Also this board comes with inserts for foot straps as standard, which is nice for foiling with speed and first time foilers. The construction is the normal Kite+ construction, with extra sandwich layers under the front foot.
The added weight of the foil box is about 400 grams. It makes the tail a bit stiffer, but this is not very noticeable when riding.

Our standard hex-skin construction, consists of the 50K foam core, the core is wrapped in a first layer of structural fibreglass, in a 45 degree orientation. This to keep the board as flexible as possible while making a very strong base. The deck is now layered with a honeycomb layer for more impact resistance. The bottom is left without honeycomb, again to maintain maximum flex.
Hex-skin Carbon is similar in composition to the hex-skin Glass boards. But instead of glass we use 100% carbon fibre, there is no glass hidden underneath the top layer of carbon. Using carbon makes the board lighter and it makes it stick to your feet even better. Because the board is so light, it flows over the chops a lot better than you might expect.
To give the carbon boards their unique look the deck is finished with a tinted resin, that can be customised, pick your own color or mix multiple for a truly one of a kind board.
